Surprised to see my caption? Initially I had no idea about the book as I generally don't read reviews before buying books. While reading book I simply enjoyed reading. After completing reading the book for some time I couldn't get away from the book. As the contents of the book some how I felt are related to me as well.
Let me come to the point reason for liking the book:
the book is simple and easy read
the book talks about the books that a mother and son read
there is also a list of books that are discussed in the book
this books talks about relationships father, mother, sons, daughter, daughter-in-law etc., and most of all a woman as a person and relations to husband, family children, daughter, colleagues and her views on helping other etc., when she is diagnosed with cancer her life after diagnosis till her death.
The author writes about his mother while he started reading books along with her while going for treatment
Probably this is the only non-fiction which I could finish very quickly, without taking many breaks. The authors tried his writing on various aspects. Very interesting analysis. Certain essays though are my interest - The Nehru Memorial Museum & Library (NMML),
Premier Book Shop, Bangalore AND Economic and Political Weekly (EPW).
The reasons I enjoyed this book:
Easy and quick read
Normally the nonfiction takes time to finish and the subject dealt will take one to take time complete the book.
This book takes one to the tour on habits with much ease and the reader tends to enjoy (at least I enjoyed) with out getting bored
The book is in three parts - one part deals with individual habits, another deals with the institutional habits and the final one on societal habits.
What is interesting in this book - most of the time you feel you know already the subject, but the way the theme is presented really makes enjoy the book
Various examples are given for each part
This book also deals with as to how one can change the habits
Why I enjoyed reading this book:
The book is easy and quick read
The first part of the book talks about the various aspects of concentration camp during Second World War without making it more complicated
The second part of it talks about the logotheraphy – which deals with the aspect of how a person has to find about him/herself
This book also deals with suffering and as to how one has to see the suffering and how one needs to overcome the same by understanding the same
I didn’t come across a book that deals with the meaning of life or that deals with the suffering, both these aspects are dealt in a easy manner in this book.
A story collection should make a reader to hook the book, how? I got the answer after reading this collection. Ruskin Bond with his style of wit and humour writes on pets, nature, tress, bear, leopard, tiger and above all ghosts. I am sure readers will enjoy this collection.
Many a times self-books give you important point on how to improve one's personality. This is really good one in this category. Self-help, self-improvement or self-healing all these categories helps readers to make improvements in one’s life. This book is helpful in this regard. One interesting aspect I found in this book is how the topic “the body” is treated. Though I read books about “the body”, this particular book gives details about each organ and how one needs to look after the parts of body. This is really interesting and useful as well.

Really interesting book for children of age 8+
Good to read the latest book of Ashwin Sanghi. Both history and mythology are used to write a racy book. This book made me hook to the book. When compared to the "Rozabal Line", this book will really make you hook to the book.
Fiction always makes me wonder about the way writers chose their subject as well as making one stick to the book. The language of flowers made me think about the writer’s style. This book is about Victoria, realizes that her passion for the flowers, takes up the florist work. Her past makes her to be careful about her life, when she meets a vendor of flowers. She realizes that her knowledge of flowers needs to be updated. She works on that, which makes her life to a different direction. I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
This is one interesting book from David Baldacci, made me hooked to the book till I completed reading the same. Though this is slow when compared to other books of author, several twists and turns with suspense, is worth reading. This is about the assassin Robie who fails to take out the mission that is assigned to him. People are after him when he tried to save Julie.
